Refrigerator Problem

Hi,
I took the plunge and bought a fully loaded used 2006 Phoenix Cruiser 2350.

I started using it immediately and within a day or two discovered one chronic headache.

It appears that whatever items stored on the shelves facing the inside of the door will not only get bounced around when driving over less than very smooth roads, but will fall towards the inside of the door so that, when I next open the refrigerator much, if not all, of what was stored on those shelves proceeds to fall all over the floor.

I'm pretty certain I'm not the first RV owner to have encountered this problem. I'd love to hear what kinds of solutions anyone has tried and found to work in preventing this problem.

Thanks.

There are spring loaded retaining bars for just this problem at your local RV supply store. They come in handy for the pantry shelves, too.

Canco makes a number of spring loaded bars for use in refrigerator or cabinets in rvs, https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_n...frigerator+bar. I use them all over, refrigerator, cabinets, across skylight and vent openings to hanp clothes or towels to dry. Use some in small coat closet to hang up coats. Just pay attention to the sizes so you order the right lengths you need.

HJCihak-
In addition to the spring loaded bars I have success using low sided plastic containers in the fridge. I can't remember where I got the ones I have but I have one for each shelf. Instead of just placing items loosely on the shelves, I place the items within the plastic container. It serves to keep food items in place and "contains" the items. Works very well.

Noob here, and on my very first outing I forgot to latch the fridge door. Thankfully I anticipated doing something stupid and bought the spring loaded bars Camco sells, they work great. Only one of six eggs broke in the debacle, and maybe a tiny crack in my ego.

Thanks all. I bought the spring loaded bars from Amazon and it looks like that will do the trick.

My solution is using plastic trays on the shelves that you can just pull out to access stuff.
Walmart has a ton of sizes. No more stuff falling out when doors opened.
